WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Fulcher released the following statement on Afghanistan:
"My heart is with the brave service members who served in Afghanistan, and the gold star families who lost their loved ones in this war. Many of these men and women joined our military shortly after the attacks on September 11th, displaying their fierce commitment to protecting our American freedoms. This bravery, service, and sacrifice will never be forgotten.
At this point, we are laser focused on ensuring Americans are able to evacuate the area safely, and I am proud of my team for their work with federal authorities to assist in the safe exit of several Idahoans already.
I urge President Biden to outline for our country how he plans to safely remove our citizens, allies, partners, and equipment from falling into the hands of the Taliban.“
